Report of Library Trustees 



To the Citizens of En field: 

It is again my privilege to present the annual report of the 
Directors of the Enfield Library Association. 

During the year 1935 11,840 books and magazines were 
taken by patrons of the library, a slight decrease from 1934 but 
an increase of 587 over the year 1933. The total number of 
books in the library is 10,112, non-fiction 4,502, fiction 3,886, 
juvenile 1,724. More than 100 books have been purchased. 
These have been carefully selected from the best books recently 
published and have been much, appreciated by the readers who 
enjoy good books. 

We have renewed our subscription through the agency of 
Mr. Robert E. Davis (a native of Enfield) for the Atlantic 
Monthly, Harper's Magazine, Popular Mechanics, Country 
Life, Good Housekeeping, St. Nicholas, Woman's Home Com- 
panion, Review of Reviews, Cosmopolitan, Ladies' Home 
Journal, American Boy, Forum, Scribner's, American Maga- 
zine, National Geographic Magazine, Outlook, Boy's Life, 
Engineering News Record. After remaining on the library 
table for one month, the magazines may be charged and taken 
home. 

Gifts of books were received from Miss Nellie E. Brown, 
Mrs. Nathan S. Brock, Dr. Willard B. Segur and Rev. John S. 
Curtis. We are grateful for the interest in the library ex- 



38 



pressed by these gifts. 

Although Children's Book Week was not publicly celebrated 
in November, book reports were given during the fall term by 
pupils of the Grammar School as a part of the regular school 
work, suitable books for these reports being secured from the 
library. Reference books from the library have been used by 
the school children more this year than during any previous 
year. 

The Directors of the Library Association feel not only is the 
association to be congratulated but the town also in again hav- 
ing Mrs. Charles N. Downing as librarian. 

The income from the dog fund and the usual appropriation 
would be much appreciated by the Directors of the Enfield 
Library Association. 

"Make Every day one of Thanksgiving for Books."

Report of School Committee 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

Your School Committee submits the following report: 

Ten regular meetings of the School Board have been held 
this year. 

In June, at the close of the school year, Miss Mary Neu- 
mann, a very conscientious and efficient teacher, resigned to 
make a home of her own. While the Committee was very sorry 
to lose her, we feel we have a very efficient successor in Miss 
Elizabeth Rugg who was transferred from the first and second 
grade room. 

Miss Louise Eekhoff of Melrose, Mass. was secured to fill 
this vacancy, and comes to us with a high recommendation. 

Mr. Mario Ciccone has remained with us this year, and is 
doing his usual good work. 

These teachers are all proving themselves sincere in their 
work, and there is a noticeable cooperation between pupil and 
teacher, which is sure to bring out the best in each, and secure 
in the end, the desired results. 

In May the usual Health Day program was held on the play 
grounds. An operetta was also given in this month by the 
pupils, at which a small attendance fee was charged. The pro- 
ceeds were placed in the bank to be used to purchase instru- 
ments to loan to worthy, interested pupils. 

Graduation exercises in June were held in the Town Hall, 
with a large attendance of friends and relatives. Seven pupils 



43 



were graduated. 

In November, Educational week was observed in the differ- 
ent rooms when a visiting day was observed. Invitations were 
extended to friends, relatives and the Committee. 

In December, a Pageant-Play of the Nativity, "The Adora- 
tion", was presented in the Congregational Church, after which 
the teachers and pupils gathered about the Community Christ- 
mas tree in the center of the village, and sang Christmas carols. 
They then adjourned to other parts of the town for singing. 

To Mrs. Beaumont and Miss Austin, we extend our appreci- 
ation for the excellent work each has done in her paricular 
line. 

Repairs are constantly becoming necessary in and around 
the school buildings, but we have tried to keep our expenses at 
a minimum, and hope to keep them down this coming year. 

We ask that the report of the Superintendent and all other 
reports be carefully read. 

Our superintendent, Mr. Knight, is alert to assist each and 
all in every way possible, and we would suggest that parents 
or guardians avail themselves of the opportunity to confer with 
him upon any subject or problem they may have. 

The Committee at this time wishes to extend to the citizens 
of Enfield its hearty thanks and appreciation for their cooper- 
ation and assistance in every way for the welfare of the 
schools, and the excellent support given by their generous ap- 
propriation and good will. 

For School Committee 

INEZ L. BROWN, Sec'y 



Report of Superintendent of Schools 



Members of the School Committee, 

Enfield, Mass. 

Ladies and Gentleman: 

I hereby submit my report for the year 1935, in which I shall 
discuss briefly the work of the year. 

Enfield has been particularly fortunate in its small teacher- 
turnover. At the end of the year, Miss Mary Neumann resigned 
to be married. Miss Neumann's work as teacher was efficient 
and was much appreciated. Her place was filled by transferring 
Miss Elizabeth Rugg from the primary to the intermediate room, 
and in turn the primary vacancy was filled by the appointment of 
Miss Louise Eekhoff of Maiden, a Perry Kindergarten Normal 
graduate. For the entire year, the upper grades have benefited 
by the leadership of Mr. Mario Ciccone. The work in music has 
been under the direction of Mrs. A. B. Beaumont. 

Various activities, such as Health Day exercises, the Christmas 
Pageant and the operetta, "Jack and the Beanstalk,'' have been 
undertaken by the teachers; while under the direction of the 
school nurse and the school physician, various clinics have minis- 
tered to the wefare of the children. 

The attendance at the school has been stimulated by awarding 
. ..inner to the room having the highest attendance for the school 
month. The results have been gratifying. 

It is a matter of considerable interest that the enrolment con- 
tinues at so high a figure as it does. The total membership is 



45 



over eighty puplis, which, in view of the impending ultimate end 
of the town seems quite remarkable. 

A visit was made to the schools during the spring of 1935, by 
Mr. Burr F. Jones, Supervisor of Elementary Education. I 
quote briefly from the report received from him after his inspec- 
tion: 

"In the light of the conditions observed on my brief visit, I 
feel constrained to congratulate the superintendent, the school 
committee, and the citizens of the town generally." 

The reports of Mrs. Beaumont and Miss Austin are well worth 
your reading. Those who attended the operetta must have been 
impressed with the painstaking effort of the teachers, <and the 
leadership of our music supervisor. 

The statistics given in Miss Austin's report cause one to real- 
ize that the function of the school applies not merely to the stor- 
ing of the mind with information, but that it does concern itself 
with the physical as well as the mental development of the child. 

In concluding this report, which is the thirty-second in the 
series of reports made to the school authorites by union superin- 
tendents, and my tenth, I am glad to commend the loyalty and 
earnestness of my colleagues, and to express my keen apprecia- 
tion of the helpful understanding and support furnished by you 
as ia committee. 

Very respectfully submitted, 

HERMAN C. KNIGHT, 

Superintendent 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



Supt. H . C. Knight, 
Belcher town, Mass. 
My dear Mr. Knight: 

The report for music in the Enfield Schools is as follows: 

Regular work was carried on in music throughout the year, the 
children contributing songs for several public occasions. 

At Christmas time, a pageant using many carols was given at 
the church by the school children ; the Health Day program in- 
cluded songs and dances, and, at the graduation exercises, groups 
from upper and lower grades sang a number of songs. 

The high spot of the year was the performance of the operetta, 
"The Magic Beanstalk," in the town hall. Owing to the very 
good support of the Enfield people, a liberal return was realized. 
This will be used to further instrumental music. 

Mr. Ciccone has continued his classes in instrumental music 
with success, some of his pupils having played between acts at 
the operetta. 

The supervisor wishes to thank Superintendent Knight, the 
teachers, and the school committee for their continued loyal sup- 
port. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GRACE D. BEAUMONT, 
Supervisor 



Report of School Nurse 



Mr. Her mail C. Knight, 
Swperinte?ide?it of Schools 
Dear Sir: 

I hereby submit my report as school nurse in the town of En- 
field for the year of 1935. 

Visits to schools 78 

Visits to homes 15 

Contagious diseases reported: 

German Measles 4 

Impetigo 4 

Scabies 1 

The pupils were weighed five times during the year. The 
parents were notified of the gain or loss of the children through 
the medium of the report card. 

Each child was given indvidual health inspection five times 
during the year and even more frequently when a condition was 
found which demanded close follow-up on the part of the nurse.- 
In May a toxin-anti-toxin clinic for the prevention of diphthe- 
ria was held. Thirty-eight children were given the three injec- 
tions. 

In October the Chadwick Follow-up clinic examined and X- 
rayed one pupil and reported her as being greatly improved. 
Later in October the Chadwick chest clinic held a Von Pirquet 
test to determine whether the school children had been infected 
with the tubercle bacillus. Then those who reacted positively 



48 



were X-rayed, and if the X-ray proved suspicious, a thorough 
physical examination followed. 

Seventy-two children and one adult were given this test. 
Eleven had positive reactions and were X-rayed. The X-ray 
showed that but two children were suspicious of childhood tuber- 
culosis. These two children will be carefully observed during 
the year bv the school nurse. 

The audiometer, an instrument for testing the hearing with 
the greatest degree of accuracy, was used in the Enfield schools. 
Sixty-six children were tested and but two were found defective. 
These two pupils do not have a sufficient hearing loss to recom- 
mend the study of lip reading. The hearing of one has greatly 
improved since the removal of her tonsils and adenoids. 

The annual physical examinations w'ere given the children by 
Dr. Segur, school physician, assisted by the school nurse. The 
report is as follows: 

Number of pupils examined 73 

Defects found : 

Scalp 4 

Throat 1 5 

Nose 2 

Glands 1 1 

Heart 5 

Nutrition 3 

Skin 1 

The school dentist has not yet examined the children's teeth. 
A notice of each child's defect was sent the respective parents. 

One pupil who had diseased tonsils had them removed and 
shows an improvement in health. 

The first aid supplies purchased for us by Mrs. Brown, have 
been most satisfactory and very popular among the children of 
the lower grades, who quickly learn the proper care of cuts and 
bruises through the use of these supplies. 



49 



There exists a happy spirit of cooperation among the teachers, 
school committee and townspeople at large in regard to the health 
work. Such a state could not have been arrived at without your 
kindly assistance, Mr. Knight. 

Respectfully submitted, 

CATHERINE L. AUSTIN, R. N.
